Full description

This attractive 1930's detached house has been greatly improved by the current owner, with the addition of an extension to the rear creating a superb open plan kitchen / diner / family room. In addition the house benefits from a private and good size west facing rear garden.

The house has been sympathetically modernised but retains a number of period features throughout, however still offers tremendous scope for further enlargement, subject to the usual planning constraints. There is a welcoming entrance hall, leading to the sitting room which has stripped floorboards and a gas coal effect fire in the fireplace. The large living space to the rear is a light space with Velux windows in the roof and French doors to the garden. There is a limestone tiled floor running throughout with underfloor heating, and the kitchen has granite worktops.

There are two double bedrooms on the first floor, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. Both bathrooms are modern. The top floor has been converted to create two further bedrooms.

The garden is one of the main attractions of the property, offering a good degree of privacy and benefitting from a sunny west facing aspect. There is a good size lawn and well stocked flower beds. A side door leads to the large single garage, with an additional room or store behind. This could easily be upgraded to make a superb home office or similar. There is ample parking to the front on the gravel drive.



Whyke Road is less than half a mile from the city centre which offers a comprehensive selection of shops, with many of the major multiple retailers being represented, as well as high quality independent traders and a number of public houses, wine bars and restaurants. The internationally acclaimed Festival Theatre, Priory Park with its historic cricket ground and Pallant House gallery are just a few examples of the nearby facilities of this thriving city. The mainline station provides a regular service to London Victoria. Goodwood is famous for its many event days including the world renowned Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival for motor racing enthusiasts and a season of horse racing including the Qatar Goodwood Festival. There are superb sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around the harbour.

Why live in Chichester?

We consider ourselves very lucky to be working in a city that blends so many different architectural styles, from elegant Georgian buildings to contemporary new apartments and waterside properties that overlook the harbour.

In 2013, The Sunday Times listed Chichester as one of the top places to live in the UK with ‘something for everyone’ – and they weren’t wrong. Chichester is a cathedral city, a county town and home to some of the oldest churches and buildings in the country. There are many well-regarded public and state schools in the local area with further and higher education options available from Chichester College, West Dean College and the University of Chichester. Our great schools have always made Chichester very appealing for those looking for the perfect place to raise a family.

Our city centre is a shopper’s paradise and there are great places to eat and drink, from elegant restaurants to cosy cafés and pubs, all set along the city’s four main streets. Chichester Cathedral on West Street dominates the skyline and, on summer afternoons, its grounds are filled with local people enjoying picnics. In the evenings, the Cathedral plays a central part in the city’s nightlife by hosting classical music events.

Chichester has a number of public parks, the Chichester Tennis and Racquets Fitness Club and Westgate Leisure Centre, where you’ll find a large swimming pool and skate park and, if sailing is your thing, Chichester Harbour is a haven for you. There really is so much to do here you’ll be spoilt for choice; spend the day on one of the many local beaches, stretch your legs on the stunning South Downs or catch a show at the Festival Theatre before it moves to a permanent home in London’s West End.
